29mi. Sunday’s ride was to Bridge Rd and back. Normally, a nice outing, today was amped up because of S SE winds of 10-12 mph. Going there myself, Chiara, Stanton Charlotte and Walter kept a good 21+ pace. Coming back was a wind tunnel exercise. I tried to use the aero position and pull the whole length of Jupiter Island. Chiara was right on my draft the whole way, a great effort for the newest rider in the group! She even took a sprint from the pier parking lot all the way home to Loggerhead Park with no challenge. Her weekly rides on Thursday am are having a very positive effect! I ate two Clif bars at the turn and barely finished the water that goes in the Specialized aero bars. I will not forget the beautiful Mandalay Bay cycling shirt I wore for the first time, thanks to Char & Stanton for a belated birthday gift! Great style and colors for me!
